Children with the Himiwari and Shimanoko School Age Programs participate in a smell test during the Autism Awareness Fair at the youth center on Kadena Air Base, Japan, April 10, 2014. The smell test booth depicted different types of odors and taught how someone who has autism may have oversensitivity to certain aromas. A smell that may be irritating to one person may be overpowering to someone with autism.
